Here is another twist to the discarded books strand. Have any of you
sold discarded books for your library on ebay?  I discovered that some
books, which I discarded to students and faculty, were then sold on ebay
-- even with library markings.  Most fetched only a few dollars - but
this might be a source of money for some libraries.   I often receive
paperback donations, and I sell or trade unacceptable ones to a local
used book store. I am wondering if I can find an adult volunteer to take
up this ebay project for our library. I became interested in this idea
after hearing that a young college student that I know picked up
discarded textbooks from a discard bin on campus and sold them on ebay
last month for $600.  Guess we have to remember the old adage that one
man's trash is another man's treasure.
